Women of a New Season: “She swallowed a fly”

Romans 16: 17-18: Now I beseech you brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

When I was a little girl there was a comic on tv who sang a funny little song that is actually an English Nursery Rhyme, about a silly old woman who swallowed a fly.  As the song went on, she kept swallowing bigger and bigger animals to catch the one before. “There was an old woman who swallowed a fly, I don’t know why she swallowed a fly, perhaps she’ll die.” Next, she swallowed a spider which tickled inside her, to catch the fly. Then a bird; a cat; a dog, each to catch the one before.  Then it says; “She swallowed a cow! I don’t know how she swallowed a cow.”  The last verse after many, says, “This same old woman, she swallowed a horse, she’s dead of course.”

As a kid I loved this, I thought it was hilarious. But today, as a grown Christian woman I am seeing a lot of people out there, swallowing flies, spiders and bigger and bigger lies being spread by the enemy of our soul, the devil.

He is of course using people’s voices to spread his propaganda, 99.9% of which is a big fat cow of a lie.  Don’t forget that last verse about the final animal, the horse. ”She’s dead of course!”

What are these lies you may ask?  Well, as a Christian you should be able to spot some of them.  For example, you will be told that Jesus Christ is not going to return again as you’ve heard.  This one is pretty much the horse of the story.  Jesus is going to return and the Bible tells us to comfort one another with these words. Which comforts you more? The world will be in great upheaval and many will die, including you and your children? Or, Jesus Christ is coming back again for you and your children because YOU as His follower are not appointed unto wrath?

But like any clever foe, he won’t start you out on the big lie, but rather feed you little bites to suck you into his web of deceit and destruction. You will be blinded and not realize that he is trying to control you with fear. You may miss the fact that he is using the media to indoctrinate your children.

If you aren’t in church, find one where you will be taught about the end times, because we are living in the end times this very moment.  If you read your Bible along- side your newspaper, you’ll see what I mean.

Your church should tell you to love all people. The color of our skin is a moot point.  We all came from the same blood.

Acts 17: 26: And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings…

We have no reason to hate one another, we are all of one bloodline. Instead, we should be working together to try to make as many people aware of Christ and what He’s done for us as we possibly can.

There is a whole so called “Woke” group of people out there who are changing the name mother to birthing people. They are saying you can pick your gender.  God alone picks your gender and it’s set when you are born to your parents.  That’s your mom (female) and dad, (male).

This Woke bunch will only prevail if the church doesn’t WAKE UP, so set your spiritual alarm by reading the Word of God and going to church to fellowship with like believers. Let’s go to the enemy’s camp and take back what he stole from us.  Until next time!
